8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Oh! you meanie minie mo, When you let me go,
You left me in the middle of next week.
When you said you'd let me go, Did I holler "No",
Now the tears are rolling down my cheek.
Boo-Hoo, You've got me crying for you,
And as I sit here and sigh,
Says I, "I can't believe it's true."
Boo-Hoo, I'll tell my mama on you,
The little game that you played,
Has made her baby oh! so blue.
You left me in the lurch,
You left me waiting at the church.
Boo-Hoo, That's why I'm crying for you,
Some day you'll feel like I do,
And you'll be Boo-hoo-hooin' too.
